Saskatchewan Sari-Sari: Filipino Roots, Prairie Growth Featuring Filipino-Canadian Community History Exhibit

The WDM is proud to partner with the Filipino-Canadian Association of Saskatchewan Inc. (FILCAS) to showcase Filipino-Canadian heritage and history in the Museum. Visitors can learn about the history of the Filipino-Canadian community in Saskatchewan through artifacts and stories on exhibit curated by community members who arrived in Saskatchewan from the 1960s onwards.

FILCAS is the registered, non-profit umbrella organization serving the Filipino-Canadian community in Saskatchewan. Established in 1973, FILCAS celebrated 50 years of connecting and supporting the over 44,000 Filipinos living in Saskatchewan in 2024. Their community history showcase is a tangible reminder of the long history of Filipino immigration and settlement in Saskatchewan.

In Filipino culture, sari-sari means “variety” and is commonly used to describe the small neighbourhood retail store that is a staple in communities throughout the Philippines. Not only do these stores provide a variety of convenient goods, but also serve as social hubs helping to build community. The sari-sari store is a symbol of the Filipino spirit of community support, it’s only fitting that the community marks the end of their year-long celebration of FILCAS’s 50th anniversary by showcasing the immigration journey and contributions of Filipino-Canadians in Saskatchewan.

Visitors can find the FILCAS community showcase exhibit, Saskatchewan Sari-Sari, in the East Wing of the WDM Saskatoon from June 9, 2024 to June 30, 2025. Celebrate and learn about Filipino culture and history in Saskatchewan!
